As well as we could have hoped for really

its a normal version found in older ladies rather then an aggressive one found in younger

no treatment plan as yet though as they still need the herceptin results back to decide

we know we're not out of the woods yet though and there's still a long way to go

Hi, found this thread looking for info & support. I found a lump, left breast. I'm still breast feeding my nearly 1 yr old (have a 4yr old too) so I hoped it was a cyst. Went to drs & she put me on the 'cancer pathway' arghhh! Had my appt 2 weeks later at the hosp (Friday)where they did an ultrasound. This confirmed a solid lump so had a biopsy. The shock on my husbands face when the consultant said they didn't know if it was cancer or not...I felt more sorry for him than myself as he's the eternal optimist & thought it would be fluid. I get my results Thurs, the day before my son's first birthday. I'm so scared, my kids so young... & just hoping for good news x

I hope and pray you get good results, as for me thank God after waiting 2 1/2 weeks for my breast ultrasound result, I got a call yesterday from my Dr's office and I was told everything was good and that I just go back in a year. I am so blessed and I thank God, I will continue to keep all the ladies that go thru this in my prayers.

Brand new to all this so I'm not sure how site works. I noticed a lump just over a week ago after having inverted nipple for a while (so was vigilant) and I've just got back from doctor who says that she thinks it IS something and is referring me. Suddenly feel plunged into another world. I'm shocked. I'm not sure how to react.

Hi there, I know exactly how you feel. I've just come out of GP with urgent referral because of a big lump I found this week. No reassurance from the GP - it looks bad and I'm terrified. I'm 54 and have a been a complete fool and missed my mammograms. Feeling utterly sick and terrified. Don't know how something like that could

grow so quickly.  My husband has private health care so he's on the phone right now trying to see if I can be seen sooner than 2 weeks. I suppose all we can do is wait and get a diagnosis.

Hi

What was your diagnosis? I have no lump but the dr said I have thickening after a routine exam (which I couldn't even feel). I have the same ache/burn sensation all under my arm pit/shoulder blade ans even down my arm. This was put down to a trapped nerve in my shoulder 18months ago but obviously now with the breast thickening and the pain still there it's worrying.

I have an appointment in 11 days time under the 2 week rule but worried as have had rhis ache for 18months! 

Just wanted to know how you got on?

Hi I've just found this thread, and I'm so sorry for all the ladies here and men. I suffer with huge anxiety and panic attacks and my worst nightmare is being ill but I found a lump a while ago and eventually saw it wasn't going away so I told my grown up daughters and they insisted I see the doc. I got an appt in the same week to go for mammogram etc, which is tomorrow, friday and I'm absolutely terrified. It is a little heartening to see I'm not the only one feeling this bad .. I feel sick all the time and no matter what I do it's always on my mind and I dread hearing the results. Thank you everyone for writing here so that we know we're not alone.

I went for my appt, and to cut a long story short, it was nothing to worry about at all. The mammogram, the ultra sound and the biopsy were nothing like I had read and thought they would be like. The biopsy, my worst terror, I didn't even feel, a slight scratch when they put in the numbing agent, and after that nothing .. just 5 small clicks as they did the procedure .. and now it's the next day and I have had to only have 2 anadin .. I probably didn't even need those but it was starting to prickle a bit, and I sleep on that side. Woke up this morning and a bit sore but once I moved it was fine, I have no pain at all now. So please don't worry, just work with them, and tell them your concerns and i'm sure they will make sure you have a painfree experience .. I have to wait now two weeks, they think there is something there .. so that's the next worry but I am so pleased to say so far it's been pain free

You’re very lucky that your biopsy was pain free. I get my results on Wednesday, after waiting nearly 3 very long weeks. The biopsy was horribly and the most painful thing ever (out of 8 samples taken I cried out on 2 of them as it hurt so much.) And it took over 40 mins to do it as they were having problems with the equipment.

However, i’ve put that experience behind me - but as the day draws closer I’m getting more and more scared. Finding it very difficult to focus at work. Keeping strong for Wed.

Waiting for results is so tough - went to GP for lump in right breast , which was indeed a cyst. Assumed in the clear only to get a recall for a suspicious area in my left breast. Vacuum biopsy last week - which was painful , but only for a short time and not long to recover. Results due tomorrow. My husband died last year after being diagnosed with terminal cancer completely out of the blue, so am stealing myself for the worse.

Hi Shuni

I'm so sorry you had such a painful experience ..  funnily enough today,  4 days after I'm getting stabbing pains in my breast but not near to the biopsy area, so I don't know what that can be.  

I wish you the very best of luck with your results, mine will be another couple of weeks I think and like you, I'm dreading it but trying to take my  mind off of it.  Fingers crossed
